This print looks amazing in a plain white frame and matt on a painted light aqua-color wall like is shown in this Chic Wall Art Instagram photo. This bathroom is gorgeous!
11. Mermaid Toilet Paper Holder
Here is another mermaid-themed décor idea that’s more for an adult bathroom than a child’s bathroom. This mermaid toilet paper holder has a look of classic elegance, despite its use! This piece is manufactured out of poly-resin material.
It measures 8 ½” x 6 ½” and looks amazing on a white shiplap wall like is shown in this photo. It fits wonderfully in coastal or beach bathrooms.

12. Sea Shells
This bathroom features narrow shelves that cover the entirety of the walls in this bathroom. Since they are painted the exact same color as the wall, it gives this room a beautiful character of its own.
We love how various seashells, starfish, and coral all line these shelves giving the room a coastal vibe. When you’re soaking in the bathtub, you’ll feel like a mermaid in the sea! You can collect these items on all of your beach vacations and display them in the bathroom. This idea was featured by Get it Cut.
13. Mermaid Figurine
If you’re going to have a bathroom that’s decorated with a mermaid theme, then you have to feature at least one mermaid figurine like this one from the Rayberro store on Amazon. It measures just over 7” tall and features a mermaid sitting on a piece of coral and looking up at the sky.
There are additional similar mermaids available in various positions and colors if this particular one isn’t your preferred style. You could display these figurines on a shelf, near the sink, or next to the bathtub.
14. Faux Bubbles on the Walls
This idea for a mermaid bathroom is perfect for a child’s bathroom. You can use clear plastic ornaments, the kind that you can take apart and fill, to simulate the look of bubbles in the water. Kelseymichelle85 takes each half of the ornament and nails them to the aqua blue wall, and the result is fun and cute!
If you’re decorating with The Little Mermaid items, you could even create some bubbles in the shape of Mickey Mouse to pay homage to Disney in your décor. This isn’t only unique, but it’s fairly inexpensive to recreate especially if you can pick up some of these ornaments on clearance after Christmas!
15. Decorative Light Switch Covers
Why settle for a plain old white light switch cover when you can use a decorative light switch cover that matches your overall décor in the room? There are so many mermaid decorative light switch covers out there, but we think these pink mermaid princess light switch covers from the Blue Ridge Vintage Shop on Etsy are super cute!
This style is achieved by covering a standard size switch plate with designer fabric, which will also give your bathroom more texture. It is sealed with a varnish, so you can expect it to hold up over time, even in a bathroom environment.
16. Mermaid Toilet Handle
This mermaid toilet handle is a fun way to add to your mermaid-themed bathroom décor! The mermaid’s tail is used as the handle to flush the toilet and it’s certainly unique. The silver color will go with any color scheme.
I’m sure these mermaid toilet handles could easily be spray-painted in a different color if you wish to do so. This particular mermaid toilet handle was featured by Jennifer Augustine, who is a realtor, and happened across this in a home she was selling. While it might not be for everyone, mermaid lovers will be thrilled!
17. DIY Resin Art Kit
It’s always fun to create your own art to display in your home. This DIY resin art kit with sea glass is the perfect way to do this, even if you aren’t artistic! Everything that you need to make this gorgeous piece of art is included in the kit from the Sher’s Beachy Creations shop on Etsy.
It comes with instructions, a 10” x 12” white frame, a cup, stir stick, gloves, resin, hardener, crushed mirrored glass, crushed blue glass, and crushed turquoise and aqua shells. This would look super cute hung up on a bathroom with mermaid décor.
18. Magical Mermaid Towel
These magical mermaid towels are simply sweet! You can display these lovely towels on a towel rack to use them as décor pieces and you can also use them! They are super-soft and feature a whimsical mermaid and seahorse. They are available as individuals or you can purchase them as a set.
The pink and white polka dot border that also matches the mermaid’s top is adorable! When you order these through Little West Street, you can actually personalize them too. What child wouldn’t love a bath towel with her own name printed on it?
19. Fish Scale Flooring
The colorful mermaid fish-scale flooring in this bathroom is absolutely beautiful! It features teal, mint green, purple, and pink and adds a lot of character and color to this bathroom. You could paint this on your existing bathroom floor or you could even paint this design on a wall.
If this bathroom is too colorful and bright for you, the mermaid fish-scale flooring is busy enough that you could even paint all of the walls in the bathroom white and it would still be absolutely stunning and beautiful. This idea was featured by House Beautiful.
20. Mosaic Soap Dispenser
We are big fans of the mosaic look when it comes to mermaid décor. How beautiful are the colors in this set? It features a variety of colors including blue, teal, aqua, pink, and purple. This mosaic soap dispenser is available at the Whole Housewares store on Amazon and you can find a variety of bathroom accessories that match this soap dispenser including a wastebasket, toilet brush holder, toothbrush holder, soap dish, and more.
Customers state that these products are durable and high-quality items. However, the mosaic pieces are made of glass and can break due to the nature of glass.
21. Bubble Light Fixture
Add elegance to your mermaid-themed bathroom with a bubble light fixture like this one featured by Eclectic Home Staging. How gorgeous would this light fixture look with a backdrop of aqua blue walls or even some of the jade green mermaid fish-scale tile that we saw earlier on in this list?
This light fixture is unique, glamorous, and fun! When you have a bathroom decorated with coastal and mermaid-inspired décor, then this bubble light fixture will fit right in! It looks great hung up over the bathtub in this example.
